9th International Summer School/ConferenceLET'S FACE CHAOS THROUGH NONLINEAR DYNAMICSat the University of Maribor, Slovenia 22 June - 6 July 2014 |

In the first week we shall have mainly school programme consisting of the following five lecture courses (one hour = 60 minutes):

**Stefano Boccaletti, Firenze, Italy, 7 hours:***Complex networks: Structure and dynamics***Tassos Bountis, Patras, Greece, 5 hours:***Mathematical modeling of complex systems***Anna Carbone, Torino, Italy, 7 hours:***Challenges in Complex Systems: in particular in socio/economic sciences***Predrag Cvitanovic, Atlanta, USA, 10 hours:***Introduction to nonlinear dynamics***Thomas Guhr, Duisburg-Essen, Germany, 5 hours:***Introduction to econophysics*

*The abstracts of the lecture courses are appended below and at the
end of the information brochure on page 27.
In the second week we shall have the conference programme, but nevertheless the
lectures will still be at the colloquium level, thus including a good introduction
for the students, nonspecialists and general physics audience. The detailed programme
will be set up in the middle of May 2014.
The session for short reports (contributed talks) presented by the participants
will be mainly on Saturday 28 July 2014 in the morning until lunch time. The posters
will be on display during the entire period of the School/Conference, that is two
weeks.
